Program  Overview

Today’s physician has a base knowledge of the wide array of drugs to treat otolaryngologic conditions and the medications that their patients are taking which may impact their condition or treatment plan. The challenge of staying current with this body of knowledge is heightened in today’s world of advanced research, new applications for existing drugs and drug innovation and made more difficult with so many competing responsibilities for our time.  The opioid epidemic and the use of legal and illegal drugs alters our patient’s presentations, disease process and morbidity thereby complicating our ability to provide quality care. This program will address these issues with special focus on AERD, otology, and the opioid epidemic.
